He prefers softness in addition to melody in music. He has developed an ear for music icons such as Mehdi Hasan, Lata, Noor Jehan, Ghulam Ali, Nusrat Fateh Ali, and also Fareeda Khanum. “Pop music is nothing but noise and hangama. You can dance on it or perform bhangra while listening to pop music. Other than this, it is nothing. It does not touch the inner chords of your heart at all” he remarks casually.

Journalism was not to his liking at the time as the army uniform used to fascinate him. "The army khaki always attracted me. So joining the army was my dream. I did try to translate my dream into a reality but to no avail," he states animatedly. Asif was his teacher. he took the audition and luckily I was later selected for the main role of that serial. I was to perform the role of a son while the late Saleem Nasir played the role of my father. He performed wonderfully in Rahain, Panah, Aik Haqeeqat Aik Afsana, Samundar, Dehleez, Dard Aur Darman and of course, Parwaz. However, initially he considered acting as only a hobby. "At first it was only a hobby for me. And gradually it became a passion for me," he describes. The period from 1975-90 is in his view the "golden period" of PTV as everyone used to put in a great effort to produce something special. But he is not very disappointed about the present state of affairs of PTV, as he still believes that it is producing standard stuff. Nasir was elevated to the position of Director General, Pakistan National Council of Arts (PNCA)in 2009 for a period of two years, after having earlier served as its Executive Director.
